John's Actions

Basic Needs & Security

Calculate Your Water Footprint

SDG #6 Water & Sanitation

I will calculate my water footprint and look for a few ways I can reduce consumption or waste.

One-Time Action

Economy & Communities

I will take the time to turn off devices when not in use (including wifi, kettle etc)

Switching devices off will help reduce power consumption overall. It will also reduce ware on devices therefore reducing future e-waste.


Economy & Communities

Opt to substitute at least 1 product with a ethical and environmentally friendly alternative

The goal for this action is to encourage us to try and utilise more environmentally friendly and ethical products within our daily habits. Examples include bamboo toilet paper.

One-Time Action

Basic Needs & Security

Reduce Kettle water usage

I will actively only fill my kettle to the level required for the drink(s) required. to save on energy, water and time.

    Spotted this news article this morning and definitely going to do it, or not do it!   It's no mow May, keep your lawnmover in the shed or just do not mow the entire lawn.  Have a read.

    Stumbled across this 2 weeks ago.  Anglian Water, you can go to their website and order water saving devices for free.  Aerators for taps and restrictor valves for showers, shhhshh the family haven't noticed, saves water and energy, you do not need to be a plumber to fit them and the best bit.  They are free!!!  Reckon all UK water companies do it

    replacing 50% of red mince meat with beans, black turtle beans are delish and better for you and the planet.  promise you, even committed carnivores will be pleasantly surprised
